Stayed here 3 nights for work-related travel when weather forecast was not looking so good for traveling. Joe even did a quick clean off of snow from my car - you won't get that service at a chain hotel.

The innkeepers were simply awesome. The owner knew I was considering staying at the Old Library and he called me personally when a room became available. Everyone was friendly and helpful.

Loved our stay! We stayed in the Olds Suite. The king bed was super comfortable. Our sitting room was a nice extra - air conditioners worked great - the bedroom and sitting room had their own. Staff was super friendly. Everything was very clean. Location was very convenient. The breakfast choices were great and everything was prepared to perfection.

Loved our stay. We had a king suite on the second floor. Clean! Comfortable! Beautiful interior! Great breakfast by Lisa! Amazing price! The owner called us to be sure we arrived and found everything in order. The bed was very comfortable and that is a big part of how we rate our stay.
